Sinn Féin to launch Job Creation Plan in New Ross

Sinn Féin will launch their Job Creation Plan in New Ross next week.  According to County Chairperson Oisin O’ Connell, the full implementation of the plan would create 156,000 new jobs and retain up to 15000 existing jobs. 

 Mr O’ Connell said;

“Ireland is about to enter its fifth year of recession.  During that time more than 200,000 people have emigrated.  We currently have 460,000 people on the live register.  The failure by Fine Gael, Labour and Fianna Fail to competently manage our economy, create jobs and stimulate growth has left us in this mess.  It’s time for new ideas.”

“Sinn Féin is proposing almost €13 billion additional investment in job creation and economic growth over the next four years.  This would create an average of 156,000 new jobs and retain up to 15000 existing jobs according to the ERSI.”

“Among the proposals contained in our jobs plan is the revival of the Irish Sugar Beet Industry through the construction of a new bio-refinery plant in New Ross.  This would create 5000 jobs.  We also propose €2.5 billion investment in the roll out of next generation broadband and sequence investment in water infrastructure.  Currently 43% of water is wasted through leaks.  This would be addressed under our plan.”

“The development and full utilisation of Rosslare Europort is also contained in the plan.  Such investment in the port could also lead to the reopening of the Rosslare to Waterford Rail Line and the construction of a new rail cargo depot in the port.  Other proposals include the abolishment of upward only rents, the capping of utility costs for a period of three years and the introduction of PRSI for the self employed.”

“Sinn Féin will be launching this document at a public meeting at the Community Development Project building in New Ross next Wednesday at 8pm.  We invite anyone interested in a new approach to job creation and anyone who believes that this state can be taken back and made a prosperous place once again to attend.  More details of this plan can be found at”
